For this challenge I drew my inspiration from Neptune, the god of water and of the sea. My piece is worked in reeled silk the colour of the Mediterranean. Since I chose to work in only one colour I used the texture of many different stitches for a variety of effects. Sharks teeth, shells, fins, aquatic plants, and abandoned fishing nets are some of the motifs that you can find amidst the swirling waters.

 

I love freeform work. It can be bold or subtle, colourful or monochromatic, but whatever it is, it is always interesting and always unique.
